There seems to be a new vendor on the block. Precise Voting is still at least a month away from ITA testing and federal qualification of their DRE voting system. What is amazing is that, according to their website, a vvpat printer is part of their system and the printer actually cuts each vvpat off and puts it into a ballot box. Amazingly this system also has a binary switch that allows 'sip-n-puff' and other technology to make their system actually accessible for voters with disabilities. What's wrong with Diebold, Sequoia, and ES&S? Are they really "technicallogically challenged"? / It now appears that the Arkansas legislature may step-in and investigate what went wrong with ES&S in the state primary and what legislation needs to be written to protect the voters from this vendors questionable service....
